Gary loved life and lived it to the fullest. While he always kept his wife on her toes, he loved her more than anything and their partnership was indestructible. There have never been two people better suited to share their life story together. He was a fabulous role model for his two sons and provided a true example of how to be a husband, father, friend and citizen. He always knew the right thing to say and provided the best advice. In his later years, Gary’s grandchildren became the light of his life. There is nothing he enjoyed more than their sporting events, fantasy football matchups, dinosaur battles, princess playing and watching all five of them play together.More than anything, Gary loved people. He was the textbook definition of a great friend. He appreciated the best in everybody with whom he associated and learned from every personal interaction. He truly cherished the numerous relationships that he formed through the years and realized that they all had a part in shaping him into the person that so many grew to love.
